Can't get maps to unlock

I just purchased the Quest. Installed the mapsource software and went to the unlocking utility. Entered the 25 digit code, at least a dozen times now. The utility says the City Select North America map is unlocked, but its not. On the mapsource map it says map detail locked. I have reinstalled the software at least 3 times..nothing works. any help, please?

Have just received my garmin gb topo dvd and the 8 letter code would not work. used a 25 digit code and it said i had unlocked it ok but my garmin etrex keeps saying cant unlock maps? any ideas?


I have had this problem before. You have to make sure you have the proper map data selected in Mapsource before you start selecting data to download to the GPS. I had multiple maps loaded into Mapsource but they weren't all unlocked for the multiple GPSs that I own. if I got the licenses mixed up between the units it wouldn't work. There should be a setting in your option menus.

How do I update the maps?


TO GET 2009 MAP IS NOT EASY! Software update is, from the site you can update software easily BUT THE MAP... you must purchase fro $69.99 OR if you're a technical person who knows the following instruction you can save some $$$

search
CNNANT2009-1 MapID 396
under torrent sites, you know what you're doing.

Use these instructions if you have downloaded it.

Download these first:
cgpsmapper.exe
gmaptool.exe
MapSetToolKit.exe
and MapSource where u can directly get from Garmin site
http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=209

Create these folders on the root drive: (I will choose one to make things easier, you can change)
C:/grmtmp
C:/grmtmp/extract

Connect your GPS to USB, and BACKUP then remove
X:/Garmin/gmapprom.img and gmapprom.sum (may be gmapsupp.[img+sum]) approx. 1GB

1) Copy gmapsupp.img from this torrent to C:/grmtmp;
2) Extract gmaptool.exe, cgpsmapper.exe and mapsettoolkit.exe to C:/grmtmp/extract
3) Open a command prompt, and navigate to the extract folder ("cd/grmtmp/extract")
4) Run "gmaptool -S ../gmapsupp.img" Note that is -(CAPITAL S), lower case s is for different option
5) The above will extract files, you will get some warnings about 10 degrees. Ignore them.
6) Run "cgpsmapper mapset00.mp"
7) Run "MapSetToolKit"
8) In MapSetToolKit, press "Install A Existing Mapset"
8a) TDB File: "mapset00.tdb
8b) Overview map: "mapset00.img"
8c) Registry name: "WhateverYouWant" (I did "Grm2009.1Update")
8d) Leave TYP files blank, and hit "Install"
9) Close MapSetToolKit and run MapSource
10) Ignore any requests to unlock map, not ready yet.
11) Go to "Utilities-Get Unit ID" and Find Device with your GPS plugged in USB. Write down Unit ID.
12) Run Garmin Unlock Utility, Enter that Unit ID at the top.
13) Select under "Select Map Product"
14) Ender 396 for the FID/MapID, use the Generate button to get 25char code.
15) In MapSource go to "Utilities-Manage Map Products"
16) Go to "Unlock Regions" Tab, and hit "Add...", enter 25char code, comment optional
17) Now on the main MapSource screen, type 'm' to enable map tool.
18) You should see a large white rectangle, with rectangle outlines (these represent NA maps)
19) Click and drag to select them all, you can click "Map Set Name" if wanted.
20) Click the "Send to Device" button. Wait an hour. Enjoy.

Unable to unlock maps for garmin nuvi 200


Soution:

1. Use Mapsource to find the unlock code for NT v8 (from Utilities->Unlock Maps...).
2. Using Notepad, edit gmapprom.unl file on the unit (under Garmin folder) to replace invalid code with the correct 25 character unlock code (no spaces or dashes) and hit Enter key and save.
3. Reboot.

When I submit my voucher code and try to send it to Garmin I get the eroor message: Error accessing the Internet (12038)


I had the same problem. Through a process of trial and error (firewalls, Google searches) I stumbled on my own solution.

I went to the Garmin website and logged in to the user account I had previously created when first registering the GPS unit I was going to use the MapSource data with.

One of the options when you have logged in is to unlock Map software. I went through several screens, entered my voucher code and then got the 25 digit unlock code. Hey presto, MapSource now working.

Not sure whether you can create an account without having a product to register, but this may help if you do have an account.

Go to the following link to get mapinstall.

http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3291

You will need to purchase Mapsource NT 2008 to get the latest maps. The upgrade will come with a serial number which you will use to register on garmin's website. You will also need your unit ID, it can be found on the back of your unit, when you register with Garmin. Afterward you will get your unlock code (25 characters). You will enter the unlock code in Mapsource before installing the maps onto your Garmin.

C.- Conectar el dispositivo GPS

2.- Abrir Keygen v1.3.exe
- Ingresar el número de 10 dígitos del ID de dipositivo en el primer espacio en blanco (Enter you Unit ID here:)
- En el cuadro Select Map Product:, selecciona de la lista <Custom Mapset>
- En la ventana emergente anota 724 para el MapID code.(ok) el código varía para otros mapas, este es para el Chile Streets.
- Haz click en el botón "Generate" de más abajo. Con esto se crea el código de desbloqueo que se ingresa en el Mapsource. (No cierres esta ventana)
3.- Abrir la utilidad de desbloqueo de mapas del Mapsource.(CTRL+U):
- Haz click en siguiente.
- Selecciona la opción "Si, tengo un código de desbloqueo de 25 caracteres" (Siguiente)
- Selecciona la opción "tengo un código de desbloqueo de 25 carcateres; lo escribiré" (siguiente)

- Selecciona "Sí" en la ventana emergente.
- Selecciona No, he terminado si no quieres instalar más códigos. (siguiente)

Please translate this procedure. The important matter for you is that you now have mapsource active and with de Keygen v1.3, you can unlock a lots of maps. Please don´t publish this solution, because a lots of people would not have access in the future to this program.
